    • #info === Ticket #230 ===
      • #link
      • #info "Moving to Pagure"
      • #info The ​Pagure Importer tool recently added support for attachments. The Marketing Trac can now migrate to Pagure. Review the outline in the ticket for how the migration plan would work.
      • #idea Migration date: Mon, 2016 Aug 29? +1/0/-1?
    • #info === Ticket #231 ===
      • #link
      • #info "Create Fedora 25 talking points"
      • #info jflory7 considers talking points the foundations for the alpha release / beta release points. People have been contacted and lists emailed with regards to this, but still is proving difficult to solicit responses on what's new in the editions, spins, and labs.
      • #idea Contact groups at their IRC meetings?
    • #info === Ticket #229 ===
      • #link
      • #info "Shared, secure password distribution"
      • #info Temporary solution for Twitter is identified (i.e. TweetDeck with user-based authentication instead of a shared password), but long-term solution for password storage (e.g. the proverbial "hit by a bus" scenario) is not covered. A solution like pass would still be effective for this. Perhaps redefining the scope of who would have access to such a repository. Could it fit into existing Infrastructure solution (private repos)? puiterwijk could possibly offer thoughts on this?
    • #info === Ticket #234 ===
      • #link
      • #info "Consider separating Marketing and Magazine"
      • #info Ongoing discussion to separate the Magazine and Marketing teams into their own separate communication channels. Marketing members are encouraged to leave their votes in the ticket. If no -1 votes, proposed migration to Magazine mailing list and IRC channel could collide with PAgure migration on 2016-08-29?
      • #idea Migration date: Mon, 2016 Aug 29? +1/0/-1?
